I’m in LA this week for the Virtual Worlds Expo.
Tomorrow, as part of the track on the Future of Virtual Worlds, I will be moderating a panel on Augmented Reality.
Augmented Reality: Virtual Interfaces to Tangible Spaces
Augmented reality is an emerging platform with new application areas for museums, edutainment, home entertainment, research, and industry. Novel approaches have taken augmented reality beyond traditional eye-worn or hand-held displays, creating links between the real and virtual worlds. Join this panel of experts as they guide you to where the augmented world is headed next.
I’m joined by:
- Marc Goodman, Director, Alcatel-Lucent
- Eric Rice, Producer, Slackstreet Studios
- Blair MacIntyre, Associate Professor, School of Interactive Computing, Director, GVU Center Augmented Environments Lab, Georgia Institute of Technology
- David Orban, Founder & Chief Evangelist, WideTag, Inc.
I might mention the Radio 1 ‘Band in your Hand‘ project.
Blair has been doing interesting work using the open source Second Life client, augmenting reality with live embedded scenes from Second Life.
If you won’t be there (room 406AB, LA Convention Center, 10 – 11am tomorrow) what ideas would you like to see thrown into the discussion, and what questions would you like me to ask the panel?
